If teenagers are tested for STD's is there a doctor patient confidental policy? Or will the doctor have to contact the parents? Also what clinics are best to go to for testing? The reason why I am asking is because a friend of a friend of mine is thinking she might have contracted something from her boyfriend and she is afraid to go get checked because she thinks the doctor will contact her parents.
